The journey from the London to Oxford is a little over 90 minutes, and we then arrive in the 'city of dreaming spires'. Your visit begins with a guided walking tour amongst the cloisters and quadrangles of Britain's oldest University, founded in 1167. Ivy clad medieval college buildings compete for space with Georgian shops and ancient churches around busy streets which both 'Town and Gown' call home. Our guided walking tour will take you into the heart of this land of hallowed academia, to the Bodleian Library, past the Radcliffe Camera, Sheldonian Theatre, Harry Potter film locations and University buildings. Entry is included to the Divinity School, built in 1488 for the teaching of theology. This splendid room is the University's earliest purpose built teaching room, and its first examination hall. With an elaborately vaulted ceiling and 455 carved bosses, it is a masterpiece of English Gothic architecture.
After the guided tour there will be some free time to enjoy and explore the city, before we depart Oxford and take the return coach journey to London.
